New Addition to Dog Park

Printer-friendly version
Thanks to the efforts of a number of folks, the colorful train that has long been a favorite climbing apparatus at the Solano St Play Area is now a permanent part of the Dog Park.  After hearing that City staff was to remove the train from the play area due to safety concerns, PB&R Commissioner Renee Marmion suggested hanging on to it and relocate for preservation purposes.  Interest grew in this idea so the Commission reviewed several sites on City property, eventually choosing the Dog Park.
 
Commissioner Cris Hart then took the installation lead and, working with City Public Works staff, refurbished the 5 pieces.  He completed the project by installing them to the fence near the Park Lane end of the Dog Park.  He stated that several dogs have already "initiated" the new additions to their area.
 
Take a look at the Dog Park's newest decorative addition when you get a chance. A very special thanks to those that thought outside the box and were able to preserve this little piece of Brisbane history for all, dogs included, to enjoy!

Monsters in Crocker Park

Printer-friendly version

No, those aren't the Ghostbusters you see up there, but...they ARE Monsters.  That is, employees of Monster Cable Products, Inc. in Brisbane.  On September 21st, a group of 20 Monster employees descended upon Crocker Park Recreation Trail (CPRT) to help clean up debris along the trail.  Splitting into two teams, they started at opposite ends and eventually met in the middle -- filling up 3 trashbags.

Thank you, dear Monsters, for your efforts in helping keep Crocker Park Recreation Trail a great amenity for everyone in Brisbane, residents and employees alike.  We truly appreciate all your hard work!

Firefighters are Back!

Printer-friendly version

Last Friday, November 12th, Brisbane Firefighters spent their first evening back in Brisbane.  For the last 2 months, they had been spending evenings in Daly City at Station 93 (464 Martin St.) after severe mold was discovered at Station 81 -- click here to read more on our old blog site.  Now, the all firefighting crews will be staying in the semi-permanent trailers that can be seen just outside the Fire Station when you're driving along Bayshore. 

Today, the firefighters had a special delivery -- their lockers!  And it was no big deal that the delivery man didn't have a ramp to unload them from his truck.  With 3 firefighters -- Capt. John Murphy and Firefighters Craig Briscoe and Aaron Sorani -- the job got done.  From unloading the 200 lbs. lockers, to getting them on the dolly and up the ramp and through the small entryway of the trailer, these guys make it look easy.

And with most things, you learn as you do.  The second time up, the guys used the floor mat to drag the lockers through the doorway.

They asked for the palettes (pictured below in the foreground) that the lockers were delivered on -- one of the firefighters thought they would make for good shelves to use in the lockers!  Smart thinking.

And lastly, a peak inside their trailers -- featuring the most important room of them all -- the kitchen.

We're glad you guys are back in town, and within the expected time period!
